Children's fund

In the children's areas of the libraries, there are books for enjoying reading, books for learning and doing homework, and other types of materials, including comics, magazines, DVDs, music CDs, board games and video games.

There are two very different sections in the children area's collections:

1. Imagination or fiction area: with books, music, films, comics, etc. The imagination tales and books are classified according to the recommended reading age.

I* - gomet blau: [blue sticker], stories for 4 to 6 year-olds. For children who are starting to read, these are books where illustrations and images are very important, and there is little or no text.

I** - gomet vermell: [red sticker], stories for 7 to 10 year-olds. Books where the text is starting to have importance. These are longer, more complex stories, aimed at children who already know how to read.

I*** - gomet verd: [green sticker], stories for children aged 11 and over. Short novels that tell stories from various genres (thrillers, adventure, mystery ,etc.).

In the imagination area, and for children who are starting to read, there are first readers, classified into stories in sans-serif script and stories in cursive.

The children's area also includes the Small Readers Area, for younger children (aged 0 to 4) and those accompanying them. This space has books where illustrations are the protagonists. Books in different sizes, shapes, colours and textures; books made from cardboard or cloth; fold-out books, etc., which aim to stimulate and further younger children's imagination and perception.

2. Area of knowledge: There are all kinds of documents to help with homework, answer queries and develop the interests and concerns of children: general and themed encyclopaedias, dictionaries, atlases, books and audiovisual materials on any subject (social sciences, natural sciences, geography, history, art mathematics, architecture, etc.).
